Questions not Answers.

There are two kinds of people around, those who listen and those who talk. Many of us want to be the talkers.

But if we can imagine how much people want to talk and the power of the listener, many would rather learn to listen more.

Listening

Listening is not natural to many despite the biological fact that humans possess two ears and a mouth.

A skill critical for a listener is the acumen for questioning, with the right questions, you audit the rambling of a talker and get to the heart of the matter.

Aside the fact that you know more about people and their vanities, it is believed that the one who questions holds the answer.

How else would you want to build leadership skill in a group situation? By asking purpose-driven questions.

You don’t want to be a crocodile fellow in a group, small ears and a big mouth. But you will want to be an influencer, a shoulder to cry on, a pillar of help. So, you should start to get the right answers from people.

A father’s son

Waiting…

Crouched on this couch

Flipping through the pages

The lines blurred

I can only see your smiles

…I am still waiting

Flicking through the channels

The pixels blurred

I can only see your shadows

I am still waiting

Waiting for that guttural voice

Calling my name again

Waiting for those strong fingers

Ruffling my hairs

Waiting to be aroused

By the aroma of ‘suya’ in the dead of the night

Waiting, just waiting

To be called a son again!

This Story captures my growing with a father in the sales profession.

I am grateful for the opportunity to be called a son by a caring man.

I hope to be one someday.
